Anthro Inspired Upcycled Denim Skirt Preview

 This is what I entered in Creative Bloggers Got Talent, and I thought you'd like to see it...

When I saw this one, I KNEW I had to make one!


I don't have a tutorial for this (yet), but I'll share with you some photos...

Here is the inspiration piece:


And here is the front of mine...
And the back...
And here is the fancy technical description of what you've been seeing:
This is a ladies' fitted skirt with set-on waistband, darts, set-in zipper and button closure.  Patchwork is created from upcycled denim jeans and some home dec fabric, set on a base/lining of muslin. It is accented with self-designed and crocheted flowers (made from cotton yarn) and decorative stitching.

I had so much fun putting this little number together, I'm going to do another one - this time I'm thinking denim and quilt fabric.  Maybe one with just quilt fabric.  Maybe both - you know me.  I'm also thinking about doing some of the crocheted trim.  I promise I really will make a tutorial for this!  I just wanted to share it with you, and whet your appetite.

Happy Friday, and have a great weekend!
